The exhibition “Design as the Capacity for Change” explores the intersection of tradition and innovation in the field of Slovenian wood design. It features a selection of wood design products and architectural projects with a strong emphasis on contemporary production.
Among the objects on exhibit at the show are the most complex Slovenian infrastructure project, which includes technical innovations in the deep impregnation of wood in order to protect from the influences of weather (Nordic Centre Planica), the most price-efficient PHI-certified passive window in the world (Natura Optimo XLT), the first computer made from wood composites (EggBox), and the first industrial paper manufactured from the Japanese knotweed plant.
The exhibition recognizes Slovenian design and architecture in wood as the creative force of the future in the Slovenian wood industry and confirms their role in achieving the capacity for change.
